Portrait Atelier

Paint eye-catching portraits in oil or acrylic! This workshop will focus on key concepts related to portrait painting, and a working process to progressively finish a portrait study from life in three hours. Working with a limited palette of just four colors you’ll learn: 

  • How to effectively block-in a painting.

  • Accurately observe value and color relationships and mix equivalent analogies in paint.

  • Simplified anatomy and understanding head construction in volumes and planes.

  • Animating the pose and keys to capturing a likeness.

The class will include discussions of past and contemporary masterworks and the technical aspects of painting and materials. You'll benefit from working in a small focused learning environment with great lighting on both the model and your work station!
